Humour is ok....

When my best friend was going through her treatment I tried to keep things as real as possible for her and between us. The last thing somebody needs is seriousness all the time and people surrounding them with grey clouds when actually, making them laugh and keeping things as normal as possible can work a treat. At the end of the day, she is still my best friend and the same girl I grew up with. I knew what I could get away with! Her cancer was not going to change that. It had no chance x

NEVER GIVE UP! THAT MEANS NEVER.

I have had Thyroid Cancer since 2008 having had 10 lots of radioactive iodine treatment. Thyroid removal. Radiotherapy. Tumours removed from my windpipe and head, then finally being put on a new drug Nexovar that slowed down my spread of the desease. I have it in my lungs hip rib head liver neck back and left eye now, and have come off Nexovar basically being told I have till Xmas. Sod that! I am not going yet! Never give up. I want to see another summer at least. Screw you Cancer. 👍
